Cathay Pacific Economy Class menu, ca. 8-30-1987., flight CX 903, Hong Kong-Manila. Aircraft yours truly flew was B747-300, with Y-class then on the stretched upper deck. Note how Economy Class 'refreshments' were like meals, very much different from the cookies, chips and sandwiches being served today. Cathay then had very great food :-) also nice to have friendly, helpful Filipino stewardesses flying with Cathay in addition to those from other Asian lands

not sure which Batley family member is listed here

This is a Cathy pilot's log-book page  for a Macau-Kai Tak flight on 2 July 1948.

The  pilot was Dale Cramer whose Cathy Catalina was later high-jacked in an attempt seize the gold it was carrying on 16 July 1948. All on board were lost except one high-jacker who survived

the de Costa listed under the Batley name was probably Delca de Costa an air hostess who  lost her life in the high-jacking crash

The components of this image were taken in 1997 using a basic roll-film camera without automatic focusing, or a film-transport motor-drive or auto-light metering.

It was mounted on a heavy tripod.

The individual negatives have recently been scanned and joined by software.

It is displayed here at low resolution to enable it to fit onto Gwulo.

To view it, use the ‘Full Screen’ button, zoom in and then use the controls to move it horizontally to see the full length.
